Democrats have consistently clamored on about President Trump’s travel ban, insisting that it would inspire radical Islamic terrorists. Seems they are truly out-of-touch with the social media platforms ISIS uses to recruit new jihadists–like YouTube for example.

The hugely popular video site has become a breeding ground for ISIS propaganda and recruitment following the recent terrorist attack in London. The Islamic State quickly claimed credit for the attack-and they are celebrating with new videos.

The Times reported:

Islamic State has flooded YouTube with hundreds of violent recruitment videos since the terrorist attack in London last week in an apparent attempt to capitalize on the tragedy, The Times can reveal.

Google, the owner of YouTube, has failed to block the films, despite dozens being posted under obvious usernames such as “Islamic Caliphate” or “IS Agent.” Many are produced by the media wing of ISIS and show, in high definition, beheadings, and other extreme violence, including children.

Google has come under fire recently, with large advertisers like AT&T and Johnson & Johnson pulling their business because of ads being placed with violent content on YouTube.

Per The Times, other ISIS videos available on YouTube included one showing a slow-motion close-up of a prisoner being shot in the head, and another featuring jihadists singing: “We shall cut off their heads, with the severe blades, we shall drink the blood, so tasty and dark red.”

London Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, condemned Google’s failure to remove the content, calling it “disgusting.” They have already lost billions of dollars in advertising revenue, and more than 250 brands have pulled their business.

    It’s all part of the globalist agenda. Spread the hate ! It is coming to a country near you. Islam and sharia law are against the US Constitution. Islam is an ideology of hate and world domination. Islam’s sole purpose is to take over any and all governments. Wake up people ! They don’t love you. In 1952 the USA had a law on the books that did not allow any Muslim practicing Islam and or sharia law to immigrate into the USA. You can thank Democrats, judges and Obama for their acts of treason.
